The Obama administration has recently put in place new regulations for car manufacturers to increase fuel economy in all vehicles by 2025 or face serious punishments. The increase isn't slight either; the government wants fuel economy to nearly double

Watch the grand push to fracking and horizontal drilling (toward development of LNP), rules and regulations to hinder private expansion in favor of government expansion, tanker-building, pipeline construction, and transport terminal building to move the LNP ... all with a thrust to oil independency and future ability to move stock outside the U.S. for leverage.

This should have been done years ago. We are giving automakers too much time.

Before making such a sweeping declaration about car's fuel efficiency, I question whether his administration talked to American car manufacuturers to see if this is possible.
I would have like to have read a realistic regulation, put into place within the next 5 years, developed accordingly.How much environmental damage is going to be created by fuel exhaust in the nest 12 years!
Again, putting policy in place that has no bearing on the present.

OF COURSE it's possible! The American auto industry once lead the world....before it got into bed with the big oil companies!

If we WANT to do it....Americans CAN do it!

And, once it's available....we all need to use this technology because it's in our best interest!

Deploy scalar wave energy and there won't be a crisis environmentally or energy wise.

The big oil companies have too much power over all of us and have become dictators, as well as the insurance companies!
